Search for dark matter and large extra dimensions in monojet events in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV
A search has been made for events containing an energetic jet and an imbalance in transverse momentum using a data sample of pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. This signature is common to both dark matter ...
Search for new physics with long-lived particles decaying to photons and missing energy in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV
A search is performed for long-lived neutral particles decaying into a photon and invisible particles. An example of such a signature is the decay of the lightest neutralino with nonzero lifetime into a gravitino and a ...
Search for stopped long-lived particles produced in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV
A search has been performed for long-lived particles that have stopped in the CMS detector, during 7 TeV proton-proton operations of the CERN LHC. The existence of such particles could be inferred from observation of their ...
Searches for supersymmetry using the MT2 variable in hadronic events produced in pp collisions at 8 TeV
Searches for supersymmetry (SUSY) are performed using a sample of hadronic events produced in 8 TeV pp collisions at the CERN LHC. The searches are based on the M T2 variable, which is a measure of the transverse momentum ...
Search for W′→tb decays in the lepton + jets final state in pp collisions at √s = 8 TeV
Results are presented from a search for the production of a heavy gauge boson W′ decaying into a top and a bottom quark, using a data set collected by the CMS experiment at √s = 8 TeV and corresponding to an integrated ...
Search for quark compositeness in dijet angular distributions from pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV
A search for quark compositeness using dijet angular distributions from pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV is presented. The search has been carried out using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.2 fb−1, ...
Search for disappearing tracks in proton-proton collisions at √s = 8 TeV
A search is presented for long-lived charged particles that decay within the CMS detector and produce the signature of a disappearing track. Disappearing tracks are identified as those with little or no associated calorimeter ...
Measurement of the ratio of the production cross sections times branching fractions of B± c → J / ψπ± and B± → J / ψK± and B (B± c → J / ψπ±π ±π ∓) / B (B± c → J / ψπ±) in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV
Abstract: The ratio of the production cross sections times branching fractions σ(B± c )B(B± c → J/ψπ±) / σ(B±)B(B± → J/ψK±) is studied in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with ...

Search for anomalous tt̄ production in the highly-boosted all-hadronic final stat
A search is presented for a massive particle, generically referred to as a Z′, decaying into a tt¯ pair. The search focuses on Z′ resonances that are sufficiently massive to produce highly Lorentz-boosted top quarks, which ...
